Finally, today, you'll know what it feels like to be in charge of things. You'll even feel that you were born to do it. In any case, you'll beautifully coordinate the day. You're the maestro conducting a full orchestra. You'll tell those around you what to do all day long. Isn't it fun to feel such personal power
Today started off with no sleep until Jessica went to work at 5:00 am. We went to sleep but I woke up at about 7:00 am to take my 8:00 am pills. It was early but the three extra hydromorphones had worn off. I went back to sleep at about 8:30 am. Two hours later I was up again and watching the series of Marco Polo on Netflix. At about 10:30 I started my bath and was soon soaking up the heat of the running hot water. I think I slept for about an hour in the tub before Peter roused me and helped me to dry off. Then it was a labour of getting dressed for the day.
It was actually warm outside with a light overcast. I would have gone with Peter to see Dr. Dent of Gloster Center at Blair Road and Ogalvie Street. The fact was that at the bus station I discovered that I had forgotten my bus pass back at home. So with a dull and stupid feeling I went home to discover the bus pass back side up (white) on the bathroom sink counter.
Peter and I phoned each other a couple of times about the missed bus and meat pies of all things. I corrected Peter on the freezer contents being two meat pies and one chicken pie. So, Peter set himself to get two chicken pies to even up the pies to two of each kind. I had to go to the bathroom before I stripped completely and went to bed.
Somehow I managed to wake up and go to my desk about ten minutes before Jessica got home from work. I was awake and watching Marco Polo when I got a mushy kiss greeting by Jessica at my desk. It wasn’t too long later that a pot of coffee was on and a hot cup of sweetened coffee appeared on my desk.
I carried on with what I was doing while Jessica started working on some of her weekly commercials for the clubs she works at. Jessica was an entertainer and organizer for shows at several clubs. She is the Leather Queen for the Knights of Ottawa representative who coordinates the ongoing public events.
It was about 8:00 pm when the chicken pie was finally cooked. We all sat down to a big piece each. Within half an hour we were off to bed while dear Jessica was off to a show. Jessica is a performer while we are tired and retired. And it wasn’t too long before we were sound asleep. I woke up again at about 10:00 pm and did my usual things. I went to the bathroom and then to the balcony for a smoke before to my desk.
At midnight, I talked to Mom for about an hour. Everything is fine in Vernon as far as Mom can see. It is reassuring to know that an 89 year old woman such as she is can live happily although my brother lives there too. The two take care of things well enough. The house had been basically rebuilt inside and out, new roof, plumbing and pipes, electrical and so on. I really like the little house in the Hundred Homes area up on the hill in the city of Vernon.
